, a conversation with ben smith, who's leaving "politico" for buzzfeed. what is that? >>> and a look back at our most provocative interviews of 2011. i'm howard kurtz, and this is the christmas day edition of "reliable sources." >>> it's been a better year for scandal. some sleazy, some superficial, all devoured by the media. perhaps the most chilling came from the world of sports. first at penn state, then at syracuse university with popular coaches accused of horrendous acts. >> in retrospect, i -- you know, i shouldn't have showered with these kids. >> what's it? >> yeah, well, that's what hits me the most. >> are you a pedophile? >> no. >> another major scandal involved a global media corporation, the one run by rupert murdoch with a slew of top executives arrested in a massive phone hacking operation. >> did you close the paper down because of the criminality? >> yes, we felt ashamed at what had happened and wanted to bring it to a close. >> and there were the inevitable political sex scandals. one topping a congressman, one exposing the dark side of a french politician, still another forci
. >> ben smith did a piece on this that nobody fears obama. >> ben smith of politico. >> that ben smith. he did a very smart piece. it was a while ago. it was at the kbining where we were seeing that people did not fear this president. you just touched on something interesting. newt gingrich was talking about this on statin island where you'd expect to find him 31 days after the caucuses this past saturday at a tea party event. he was talking about how they couldn't have gotten welfare reform done many the '90s without bill clinton and that bill clinton knew how to work with the legislature. this was revisionist history and the government shutdown. he was making the point that bill clinton would reach out to lawmakers. there would be birthday well wishes, rides on air force one. i do think there is something to that. >> dlfs a sense that there was a love for the president. clinton was called a political animal. everybody who runs for and wins the office of president has to be a political animal. the back and forth seems so much a part of clinton's dna. >> to maggy's point, i saw a greet twe
score, 4th quarter. frank gore. 5-yard touchdown run. 20-3. smith sacks ben roethlisberger. smith has 13 this season. and the 9ers roll, 20-3. [ cheers and applause ] >> that's a first. [ laughter ] >> not about, you know, individual stats, numbers, things like that, we are playing team football. great special teams, putting us in great situation. >> they created turnovers. they got turnovers. got a few plays. controlled the ball offensively. you know, we didn't do enough. they played with a lead. they played how they play. >> biggest thing is, proud of our time. great win. >> reporter: how was it before the game? >> it was dark. [ laughter ] >> everybody feeling good tonight. the 9ers 11-3. short week. at seattle coming up this saturday. nfl history made tonight. first time ever that the 9ers got -- any teams got 14 straight games without allowing a rushing touchdown. raiders for all the health downs on sunday they could still make the playoffs. stafford in trouble. loose ball. score as touchdown. the raiders score twice in 30 second. they let let and they bring it back. second touchdow
party and of course the white house. "politico's" ben smith is live in new york. hey, ben, this pits your action against newt gingrich. he's getting beaten up. but some suggest it is actually going to help him play more of an outsider and it will help him with for example the tea party. >> yeah. i think that's insane. newt gingrich has been on this run for months where he was the kind of friendly uncle of the republican field and these debates attacking the moderators on their behalf, nobody said a bad word about him. now suddenly everybody is saying a bad word about him. rick perry, allies of mitt romney, ron paul, and the entire d.c. pundit class essentially. former members of congress, not a single member of the class who brought him in has endorsed him. i think iowa republican voters are going to listen to those voices at least. a lot of these people are also they trust and respect. so i think gingrich is just now starting to be tested. i think the idea this is all the millions of dollars that are about to be spent attacking him are a gift to him in some ways. are probably a litt

-6 and driving. hits on the short pass. tries an extra move to get past ben smith. on the way down, he fumbles. smith recovers the loose ball and hops on a caravan, full of eagles. 96 yards the other way for the apparent touchdown. wait a minute. upon further review, he was down before the fumble. no touchdown. >> that would have been a real tough thing. you work yourself silly to get to the five like that and earnest going down there. you work so hard to have it go 95 for a touchdown. it didn't seem right at the time. i'm glad instant replay showed it wasn't right. >> washington turns it into a ten-point turn around with a field goal and gary clark connection. the skins had done it. a 20-6 win over the eagles. >> we knew coming out of the gate we were going to beat them. people on this team say it, we know deep down inside, down here, where it really counts. we did. >> it was free to individually give it their best shot. no pressure and no pressure from no man, not even the coaches. just lay it on the line. we could walk out here winners, gracious winners or gracious losers. thank god, we lea

disappearing act, a no-show from a lot of the normal to and fro of this campaign. i mean, ben smith of politico said that he was in a mittness protection program. [laughter] nobody could find him. now all of a sudden he's having to show up for the sunday talk show circuits and to make his voice be heard because people are wondering, you know, who is he, where is he, what does he believe and, yes, when newt is now ahead in three of the primary states that are crucial, you know, iowa, south carolina and florida, if he's not going to mobilize now, when is mitt romney going to mobilize? jon: real quickly, what about this debate that donald trump is going to be moderating? there's been so much written about whether or not this is a good idea. judy, what do you think about that? >> i just think this is a huge distraction. i mean, my gosh, how many debates have we had, and where is it written that only news people have to be moderators of debates? i mean, the amazing thing is that trump himself cast, cast aspersions on his own independence and ability to be a fair-minded moderator by insisting today t

in for shepard smith. this is the fox report. and the game continues to change for democrats in washington. with today's announcement from nebraska senator ben nelson, it's time to move on. that straight from the mouth of the 70-year-old conservative democrat. announcing he will leave office at the end of his second term next year. and he is not the only one. 14 other capitol hill democrats making the same move for a total of six in the senate, nine in the house. ultimately, it could all mean a big shift in the balance of power in congress. molly henneberg is live in washington. why is ben nelson leaving the senate? >> hi, trace, in part political analysts say because the moderate democrat likely would have faced a tough re-election fight in the very red state of nebraska. senator nelson was viewed as the deciding vote in 2009 that passed president obama's health care law. which didn't go over so well at home. >> there is no question that his vote for obama care sent him from the heights of popularity to the depths of unpopularity in nebraska. he has never really recovered from that vote.
